South Catholic Celebrated at Northwest Catholic
On November 27, 2015, South Catholic Alumni and friends were treated to wonderful evening visiting with old friends while listening to acclaimed author F. Mark Granato speak atNorthwest Catholic High School. Granato, a South Catholic graduate from the class of 1970, is one of Connecticut’s rising literary voices. He has written six books, including the Pulitzer Prize-nominated “Finding David.” During his talk, Mr. Granato gave an overview of each book and shared how the values he acquired while attending St. Augustine School and South Catholic High School manifested themselves throughout his writings. A wine and cheese social and book signing by the author immediately followed Mr. Granato’s presentation. Click HERE to see photos from the event.
